Fair Housing

The ACLU of Maryland is building opportunity out of the legacy of segregation. Our fair housing work began with the filing of the landmark civil rights lawsuit, Thompson v. HUD, on behalf of 14,000 African American families in public housing. From that came the Baltimore Housing Mobility Program, which facilitates movement of families and children from racially isolated, disinvested, high-poverty neighborhoods to areas of opportunity in city and suburban neighborhoods that have better schools, lower crime, and more job opportunities.
